Isaiah 9:6 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Might God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
The above passage is a prophecy made four hundred years before the birth of Jesus. It is unique, in that it tells of the divinity of the Messiah, by saying “unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given”, meaning that God gave us His son in the birth of this child. Which leads to the passage:
Isaiah 7:14 “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel (God with us.).
A mortal man might possibly die for another’s sins, but only God could take upon Himself the sins of all mankind. But God cannot die, unless His Word, His promise of salvation, became incarnate in a human body and through His divinity takes the sins of the world upon Himself to pay the penalty through the death of His incarnate body.
John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
John 1:14 “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelled among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
He brought the light of life to all mankind, and through him the nations hope,and find fulfillment. Blessed be His name.
Hallelujah and Merry Christmas.
